    Yeah funny that. I was thinking only the other day as I was single handedly manhandling our new UPS into a server room not much bigger than a cupboard, "Why don't I lie flat on my back on a nearby bench?" And then I remembered that hardly ever are you required to lift things in real life from a bench press position.

    Although we don't often find ourselves in a position where we are lifting in such a way. It is a good way to make arbitrary judgements about upper body strength.

    It's the only real way to judge. "How much can you lift" in any context other than what you can lift with specific weights (e.g. in a gym) puts far too much focus on size and shape rather than weight.

    edit: It is the also the only real way to know how much weight you are lifting. "How much can you lift?" quite obviously means "how much weight can you lift?", and "I can lift a girl", "I can lift a car" or "I can lift a filing cabinet" doesn't mean anything, because they all weigh different amounts, and nobody is going to weigh them. Actual weights however say how much they weigh on them.

    I can lift more than my bodyweight. But I don't weigh much.
    I haven't actually tried recently...

    I tried to clim on the back of a trailer last night. Normally I can do it no problem but when i tried it felt like my hands detached from my body for a few seconds.


    I can happily lift constant 8kg above my head 8 hours straight now though.

    I can lift 2 elephants, though this isn't actually too good as I weigh 4000 stone.

    I weigh 70kg and last time i checked (which was over a year ago) i could bench 70 pounds. Never did much benching anyway. I can squat with 100 pounds on my shoulders.
